Root Canal Treatment

For the general damages that occurred in the pulp (soft tooth layer), teeth were being extracted in old practices. However, the only solution have been no longer a tooth extraction with the root canal treatment that is applied to the teeth in today’s technology.

Why is a Root Canal Treatment?

If the living tissues or pulp in the root canals of the tooth, whose alias are nerves have become infected or they can not survive, the root canal treatment is needed. This is because, this tissue has no capability of self-perpetuation and restoration as other tissues in the body. Deep decays, fillings made onto the tooth, operations such as tooth cutting, cracks or fractures occurred in tooth may lead to inflammation of the pulp. Moreover, traumas occurred in the teeth may cause inflammation and damage to the pulp even if there is no crook or decay in the teeth. If the inflamed pulp is not treated, it causes pain and abscess.

Who applies Root Canal Treatment?

All dentists learn the basic principles and practice of the canal treatment. But general dentists usually direct their patients to Endodontist, who is a root canal treatment specialist.

How does the treatment help save the tooth?

The endodontist removes inflamed or damaged pulp (vessel-nerve pack) from the root canal of the tooth. After he cleanses and shapes the root canals carefully and attentively, he fills the root canal. After root canal treatment, filling or porcelain crown are applied on your tooth. After all these operations, your tooth will continue its function like other teeth.

Is pain felt while root canal treatment is applied?

Thanks to modern anesthesia techniques and materials, pain during treatment is minimized at the least. A few days after the treatment, sensibility or pain may occur in the teeth. Getting pain medication for all these complaints may be recommended by your dentist.

Can root canal treatment be applied for all teeth?

Some teeth may not be recovered by root canal treatment. Lack of access to the canals, fractures in the roots, lack of adequate bone support, or the fact that the tooth is so damaged as much as it cannot be restored are the primary reasons.

Does root canal treatment kill tooth?

The idea "channel treatment kills the tooth" does not reflect the reality. After the living tissue in the tooth is removed by root canal treatment, the tooth become benumbed to the temperature and the cold, but continue to work with the vessels or nerves coming from the jawbone and surrounding tissues and hold onto the bone. You can chew so comfortable under favour of a suitable filling or restoration to be performed after treatment, or you can use your tooth as a denture foot.
